The Many Dimensions of Christmas in Israel

Israel is so dynamically individual - filled with a plethora of diverse personalities, cultures, ethnicities, and religions all of which live, work, study, and play in our one and only Jewish State - as the one state in the Middle East that promotes religious freedom for all, protecting the rights of Christians to practice freely.

We hope you enjoy this collage of images and videos of Christmas in the birthplace of Jesus, here in the Land of Israel.
